3 Personal Property We are going to take a look at how business tangible personal property is pooled into our pooling system. The pooling system is found on the Form 103 Long Form, Schedule A. (provided at the end of this program) There are four (4) separate pools and are established as follows: 2

4 Personal Property Pool # 1: this pool is for assets with a Federal Tax Life of one (1) to four (4) years. Pool # 2: this pool is for assets with a Federal Tax Life of five (5) to eight (8) years. Pool # 3: this pool is for assets with a Federal Tax Life of nine (9) to twelve (12) years. Pool # 4: this pool is for assets with a Federal Tax Life of thirteen (13) years and longer. 3

5 Pooling of Assets There are four (4) things you need to know and do to pool assets. 1.Identify what is Personal Property 2.Determine the Federal Tax Life 3.Determine the Federal Tax Date of Acquisition 4.Determine the Federal Tax Cost 4

8 Pooling of Assets The following is Pool # 2 from Form 103 Long. 7

9 Pooling of Assets 8 Following is the pooling of the depreciable assets that we determined were Personal property in the previous slides.

10 Pooling of Assets From the pooling of the assets on the previous slide we arrived at a True Tax Value of $107,600. What we have to do next is determine if this is above or below the 30% Floor. In pooling personal property the taxpayer is not allowed to depreciate their personal property below 30% of adjusted cost in Column C. 9

11 Pooling of Assets Therefore we are required to take the higher of Column D or 30% of the Adjusted Cost in Column C. The adjusted cost in Column C is $255,000. This value times 30% is $76,500. Our Column D value from Slide # 8 is $107,600 and our 30% floor from above is $76,500. So the True Tax Value in Column D is the greater of the two which is $107,600. $107,600 would be the value carried to the front of the Form 103 Long Form and is the amount the taxpayer will pay taxes on. 10

12 Personal Property The example that was just presented is a very simplified version of pooling assets and arriving at a True Tax Value for depreciable assets. As an assessing official you will not be involved directly with filling out the pooling schedules of taxpayers. However, you may need to review some schedules due to the taxpayer possibly not reporting properly. You as assessing officials, have the right to request that taxpayers present you with records to backup the amounts they have reported to you. 11

13 Personal Property Some of the records you would request are as follows: The latest Federal Tax Return A detailed Depreciation Schedule A Balance Sheet General Ledger If you make any changes, as a result of this review, you must notify the taxpayer via a Form 113/PP. This form shows the original filing amount and the value you have established after reviewing the requested records. 12
